Common Questions and Comments
"What can I do to give children physical activity opportunities when it's cold or raining outside and we have to stay indoors?"
First, children can still have outdoor recess when it is rainy or a bit cold, as long as they are dressed appropriately. Encourage parents to provide outdoor jackets, hats, gloves, and boots for inclement weather. Next, when the weather is too extreme for outside recess, you should include physical activity indoors for the group. Move your group to a gym or large open space free of furniture and fixtures and provide games such as ball toss, freeze tag, soccer, and more!
"How much physical activity do children need each day?"
That largely depends on the age of the children. Revisit the following pages for more information:
